Turns out George W. Bush learned something from the Sixties after all

Just not the particular lesson from the Sixties you might have been thinking of:

Oliver Stone’s new documentary South of the Border, which interviews several left-wing leaders of Latin American countries, has unearthed a startling new allegation from Argentina’s former president Néstor Kirchner. During his interview with Stone, Kirchner said he once discussed global economic problems with former President George W. Bush. The former Argentine president says that when he suggested a new Marshall Plan, referring to the WW II-era European reconstruction plan, Bush "got angry" and suggested that "the Marshall Plan is a crazy idea of the Democrats." Instead, Kirchner says, Bush suggested that "the best way to revitalize the economy is war"

There's a Memorial Day thought for you.
